"This is the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in"
"We cannot rate this property highly enough! We extended our stay we enjoyed it so much, which I think tells you everything. It has all of the mod cons you could wish for while being in a beautiful location, we like to think of it as the best of both worlds. Everything was superb, from the service from Best of Suffolk to the quality of all the finishes within the property. We will most certainly be back again!"
‘Wow, what a week! Our first time to Suffolk and we have fallen in love!’
‘What a pleasure to stay somewhere that is all that you hoped for.’
‘Very impressed with the standard at Garden Lodge – with its peaceful and relaxing setting.’
‘Our third stay – where else but Garden Lodge.’
'Lovely cottage, lovely region and a lovely holiday, thanks'
'Lovely weather for the time of year. Peaceful location, good facilities, great shower. Loved Lavenham, Dedham & Flatford – walk along the river. Revisited Aldeburgh, walked to Thorpeness – good cake & Coffee at the kitchen off duck pond. Superb meat at The Greyhound @ Petistree near Wickham Market. So many things to see and do in Suffolk. Love It'
'Garden Lodge is everything we hoped it would be – peace & quiet with a lovely interior – comfort & style as we wanted with all the amenities. Thank you – we have had a great week – our first time in Suffolk. Great walks – we love Snape Maltings & walked into Aldeburgh'
'After numerous stays at Garden Lodge, it still delivers all the peace and tranquility you could wish for. Added to near perfect weather and the flourishing garden it has made for a hugely enjoyable holiday'
'Third stay here, equally enjoyable as previous visits. Great to see Suffolk in late summer' – 25/09/2016
